Isn't this Christmas cactus beautiful? I'd forgotten how lovely these plants can be. My thoughtful mother-in-law sent me one as a congratulatory gift for becoming a National Board Certified Teacher. It was so sweet of her, but I'm amazed at how much joy this plant is giving to me.

I also received an unusually beautiful poinsettia from one of my students. I love looking at it in my kitchen window. It's incredible.

These simple plants have really touched my heart. Speaking of which, yesterday was December 1st. My incredible husband set up my Christmas table, and when I woke up, it had the first gift of December upon it. I'm so blessed, aren't I?

  1. Friend, I am so happy that you are happy. Regarding the Christmas cactus, my own that I've had since we lived in Maine has not bloomed since I moved to Auburn. Until I moved, it bloomed reliably and beautifully every year. Do you think it's some kind of omen????
